[aur-general] Request for comment on gnuplot-nox PKGBUILD

I recently adopted the gnuplot-nox (
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/?O=0&K=gnuplot-nox) package and I would
like to have your advices before publishing a new version of the PKGBUILD
(this is my first package in AUR).

I have read the wiki pages about arch packaging standard and AUR (eh! that
is even why I am posting to the list)
I mostly adapted the pkgbuild of the former maintainer so you should not
fire me on the spot (I hope).

PKGBUILD : http://pastebin.com/RGh7jPYA
patch : http://pastebin.com/MwAQTqm2

Two main questions :
- should the package "Provides" gnuplot or "Conflict" with gnuplot (from
[extra]) ?
- is it the right way to patch sources ?
